You will climb to the top of Shelving Rock Mountain and then down to the shore past Shelving Rock Falls. This is a fun hike exploring the Shelving Rock Mountain area on the east side of Lake George. You will climb to the top of Shelving Rock Mountain for views down to the lake and then explore the shoreline around Log Bay and Shelving Rock Bay. You'll pass by beautiful Shelving Rock Falls twice on this hike. Be careful on the rocks around the falls as they are slippery

Had a little difficulty finding the falls as we first drove right past the sign. Trails are well marked and easy to follow. Well worth it!!

Didn't end up finding the falls. In not sure how we missed it must have been one of the points on the map that you have to kind of hike back and go the other way to see.. Also the last 1/4 mile or 1/2 is blocked off by posted signs and a gate. Was a nice hike around the lake lots of boaters out and swimmers. Could easy brought my suit and jumped in to cool off. We hiked down the backside of the mountain trail less and just made out own path down to the lake. So maybe this is why we didn't see the water falls. Probably try and find it next time when we hike Buck and prospect.
